4 A Few Abandoned Planes on the Air Strip

A Few Abandoned Planes on the Air Strip

Posted on December 22, 2014 by tim


Andrei Kronos, a blogger, got a chance to go to the city near Moscow with a camera and a wide-angle lens to shoot some photos of the old airplanes that have been moth-balled for a while. The planes he saw there were TU-154 and AN-24 and he thoroughly photographed those from the outside, and more importantly, from the inside.

They look like this on the inside.

Cabin crew seats.

A kitchen.

And an AN-24 plane.

Also going inside.

“The worst side of this plane – tall people can’t stand full size”.

This orange thing is a “black box”.

Lot’s of gauges.

    Seems like such a waste.

    This orange thing is not a “black box” but an engine/ aux power unit’s fire extinguisher

    The three-engined jet airliners on the first page are the TU-154. They were quite amazing jets for their time (I mean the 1960s through about 1990). It’s the fastest subsonic passenger airliner of all time. It could take off and land pretty much anywhere. Extremely reliable. However, in the 80s Boeing has beaten pretty much any other company in the world by proving that it’s possible to build a two-engined long range wide and narrow body aircrafts such as B757 and B767. This immediately made aircraft like DC-10 or TU-154 obsolete. However, the TU-154 still clunked along for quite some time, well into 21st century.
